Public Records Online Request Form

Important! Please do not use this form to request student records.

This form is designed to help government agencies, the media and the private citizens in Polk County access public records related to Polk County Public Schools. The District understands that it must be accountable to its citizens and their right to know how their tax dollars are spent and how decisions are made.

Please remember that student records have another set of statutory requirements and this is not the link to make that request. Student record requests for current students are made at the student's school site. If you are a former student of Polk County Public Schools, grades Kg-12, and need a transcript for a job application or for continuing your education a request form must be completed before transcript can be released. For more information, contact the Pupil Accounting and Records Department at 863-519-3925 or use the link below.

All public records request are handled in accordance with Florida's Public Record laws.
